Date of birth: July 7, 1957

Billie Eilish has been interested in music since she was 8. Although the teen sensation didn’t plan to become professional, she got great training as a musician – mostly due to her father, who is a big fan of music. Patrick listened to recordings of various genres – starting from Beatles and ending with Avril Lavigne. He taught his son Finneas and daughter Billie to love music and in addition let them become homeschooled, so they had enough time to make their music experiments.

Patrick O’Connell knows how important it is for an artist to have enough time for creative work. That’s because he is busy in the entertainment industry, too. He is an actor, known by roles in the movies “Iron Man”, “The West Wing” and others.

Patrick fell in love with acting in his young years, which he spent in Norwalk, Connecticut. He moved to Los Angeles, when decided to pursue acting as a career. There he resides till now with his wife Maggie and their two children.

Billie’s father taught her to understand music, while her mother inspired her to create it. Maggie is a unique personality, who develops her own creativity – and helps her daughter and son create theirs.

She rose to fame as a singer, songwriter and voice actress. Maggie spoke for the heroine of a role-playing video game “Mass Effect 2”, named Samara. Not long ago the woman co-wrote the movie “Life Inside Out”, where she starred in the company of her husband and son.

Really, Maggie can be proud of what she’s doing, but she is even more proud of the family she created. In her interview to “Your Teen” magazine the woman told, that they don’t lead a typical “Hollywood” lifestyle. Of course, each member of their family is a busy person, who visits auditions, takes part in new projects, but if they have some free evening, surely they gather around a dinner table and enjoy the meal in the circle of closest people.

By the way, Billie Eilish still lives with her parents in their cozy, but not big house in LA. The teen star resides with her parents in two-bedroom home.

Maggie and her husband made up a difficult decision to let her kids study at home. She explained, that such a kind of getting education helped her kids to hear themselves and to understand, what their calling was.

Date of birth: July 30, 1997

Finneas is that very person, who played the key part in his sister’s career. He authored a song “Ocean Eyes” and convinced Billie to sing it. Both had no idea, that their track would become so viral. Actually, that was the first stone, from which Billie Eilish started to build her career.

In addition to the role of Billie’s producer, Finneas is also a musician, songwriter and an actor. Viewers may remember him as Spencer from the film “Bad Teacher”, where he played with Cameron Diaz; as Alistair from the series “Glee” and in some other projects.

Finneas O’Connell was born and raised in Los Angeles. He was homeschooled, and according to his interview to “Your Teen”, he doesn’t plan to go to college in the nearest future. “It’s better to save the massive amount of money and spent it for the start of your career”, he tells.

Bio

Billie Eilish bio

She is an incredibly talented teenager, who looks quite unusual, wearing her baggy suits and layered coats. “I know, that people are terrified, looking at me, but that’s what I want”, she tells.

Probably, she knows, what’s she doing, because she has already achieved massive success in music industry without any idea to become a popular musician.

Billie Eilish was born in the family of two actors. She was homeschooled, and didn’t spend too much time, learning math or English. But she got great training as a piano player – Billie visited music lessons since her early years. In addition, she sang in Los Angeles choir, wrote songs and attended dancing lessons.

Her dancing coach asked the girl to find a new composition to compose a dance to it. The girl took the homemade record of “Ocean Eyes”, which she previously made under the guidance of her older brother. To share the track with her teacher, she uploaded it to “SoundCloud”.  Unexpectedly, it later became public, and soon got millions of views.

As for now, Billie develops her initial success in music. She had already released her debut EP “Don’t Smile at Me” and started her first tour, tickets for which were sold within a couple of hours.

  • no says:

    uno flip

  • zoiebowie says:

    shawty wrote a whole ass paragraph lmao NOBODY cares !!!

  • Kitty meow says:

    at first I liked her but since she’s gotten ALL her grammys and maybe before she’s acting or being quoted as saying the most obnoxious things like she doesn’t like to smile bull shit that’s a lie and she knows it I can’t tell you how many times at shows or videos she smiles what about that thing she does when she smiles then sticks her tounge out and wrinkles her nose. I’ve constantly seen her smile and laugh so what she’s trying to sound all dark or?something she already does that by constantly whining about how depressed she is. I’m sorry if she feels that sad but honestly she doesn’t even have the life that would actually would make someone that depressed. Was she abused in poverty lost a mother father or sibling? I get that depression can hit anyone for many reasons but she seems to ride off of it. Oh Billie I’m SO sorry that you have wonderful and successful parents that you grew up in a nice area that you had so much support in your passion. The only thing girls her age worry about are body image issues which she’s said she has. That is understandable. I read an article where she said her neighborhood used to be sketchy gun shots lol she seems to forget she’s NOT the only person that grew up in that area that nobody else has ever said that they had that experience growing up there AND these people are?adults now SO they were there way longer AND way before her. I’m tired of kids trying to make themselves AND their lives sound so dark when that’s the furthest thing from the truth. She then says ” I know people are horrified looking at me ect…” Umm is she being serious? Oh yes Billie your beautiful face with beautiful pouty lips and big gorgeous eyes are just so scary and off putting who the hell does she think she’s kidding? It ALL ties to this dark sad image she’s trying but failing to create because we see her laughing smiling and being silly ALL the time yet she claims she hates smiling. If she wanted us to buy that if it was true we wouldn’t see her doing it so often. You can’t say one thing then do the opposite it makes you look like a liar or worse attention seeking which she doesn’t need to do hello your giant right now Billie!!! Also her favorite brands to wear are brands that nobody that goes to her shows or regular kids could NEVER afford. So she dolls herself up in thousand dollar outfits but is so sad and dark at the same time. I’ll tell you from experience people sad depressed do NOT spend a ton of time or money on fancy brands that’s actually usually how you can tell something is wrong with them their appearance starts getting worse and worse not caring about what they wear hygine starts to fail ect….I just wish because she has some beautiful tones in her voice that she would?stop portraying herself like this it’s old and tired and?the patients I see that are S. M. I. with depression and mental illness have said that people like that, that use depression sadness or being a dark sad person makes them and their actual illness either seem cool or not taken as serious they feel like. That’s how some of them feel and ALL feelings are valid even Billies if I thought she was being honest BUT she seems the exact opposite when on stage in public in pictures in interviews I hate smiling she says and the next moment she’s laughing out loud with whoever is interviewing her. She actually seems to like laughing smiling joking playing pranks everything that a well balanced person does. Again she has a wonderful supportive family good friends and tons of adoring fans that just love her. Unless she’s mentally ill which is something your born with generally she hasn’t had the life that would make her the person that doesn’t like to smile or likes to think people are horrified when looking at her. Those things are straight out attention seeking. That’s her real problem why does she want people to see her like that? Why does she want people to be ” horrified” when looking at her? Lastly why need to look for attention when she already has SO much? She’s human just like everyone else what seperates her from those who are actually in a truly bad way is she’s not S.M.I. she’s a kid that seems to either not appreciate or it isn’t enough to be very famous and be influencing young people all over the world

  • Sayler says:

    Also cultural sesspool and sewagewaste, you guys are the reason that this world is full of hate. Instead of embracing her uniqueness and accepting her you just put her down like that. You guys need to get a reality check no one cares you guys can hate but she will never change the way she is just because of you guys.

  • Sayler says:

    The girl that said her name is angel, I like your enthusiasm but you can chill out I can guarantee that you are not her biggest fan no one is going to prove that and if you do then you will be extremely weird and creep her out so yah just sayin

  • Leo says:

    Oh yeah and y’all that hate are trash

  • Leo says:

    I love Billie! She’s the best and I wish I knew her in person..

  • Tronn Simmons says:

    I love her will see her soon

  • Jordan says:

    I am trying to figure out who Billie looks like. She does not look like her mom or dad, so her physical looks must favor a grandparent. Finneas looks like his dad. And most web sites put her height at 5ft 3 inches. I don’t think she is 5ft 4 inches. She is shorter than her mom. Anyways, a great talent, no one else like her, which of course, is what she wants.

  • Larissa says:

    Billie just won a Grammy at age 17. You can do anything if you want to! Go Billie
